Why do I as an Employer need to have medicals done on my employees?

According to the Occupational Health and Safety act (no. 85 of 1993) and the Construction Regulation 2014 it’s required for all labourers’ to have a certificate of fitness. All employees should be fit and suitable for the specific job that they need to perform.
It is important to provide occupational health services for all working people irrespective of the kind of employment, size of the workplace or geographical setting.

Why is it important to do medical surveillance?

Occupational health services are important to prevent, control and eliminate any hazardous elements and exposures to workers in the workplace. Prevention of unnecessary exposure to hazards is essential to prevent injury and illness.

What different medicals can be done?

  • Pre-assignment (pre-employment) health examinations
  • Periodic health examinations
  • Return to work health examinations
  • General health examinations
  • Health examinations at termination or after ending of service
  • Construction medicals including an Annexure 3 document

Is Occupational health a way to get rid of ill employees?

No. Occupational health is there to advance your health and keep you as healthy and safe as possible in the workplace. It’s a good tool to recognise an illness that you were not aware of so that treatment can start earlier rather than later.

How long does it take to do a medical examination?

A medical examination takes 30-45 min depending on all relevant tests needed to be done.

Where will the medical examination be done?

This is a mobile service so it will take place at the convenience of the company.

Will the employer have access to all medical records?

No, all information provided by the client is confidential and kept on file. The employer will only receive a fitness certificate to state whether the employee is fit for duty or not.

Audiometry

AUDIOMETRY (Hearing Test)

Audiometry is essential and required by law for workers of all industries from construction, drivers, machine operators, farmworkers, factory workers, mine workers to food handlers etc. who are exposed to noise levels above 85Db.

Exposure to noise above the human ear tolerance is one of the most typical causes of hearing loss. This is a common occupational hazard. When exposed to levels above 85dB over an 8-hour working day, and over a 40-year working life is associated with substantial hearing loss, called “Noise-Induced Hearing Loss” (NIHL).

South African employers must meet certain criteria to reduce employees’ exposure to noise that could result in hearing damage.

OCCMED@WORK conducts onsite otoscopy assessments and audiometry using pure-tone air conduction audiometry (PTACA) to screen workers who have been exposed to excessive noise levels. By determining employee’s baseline hearing thresholds, noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) can be identified early on and the appropriate corrective actions can be applied.

We would like to refer to the Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993, the Environmental Regulations. It stipulates that Audiometric testing should be done yearly on employees working in an area where the noise levels exceeding 85 dB. See Government Gazette NO 22834 Vol.437.
